BOOKMARK CONTEST!

It’s time for our annual bookmark contest! Students of all ages are invited to draw a bookmark inspired by our CIRCUS/CARNIVAL theme and hand it in to their teachers OR outside the office (look for a box on the bench) by March 8th. Two lucky winners from each grade (K-6) and one each for 7th & 8th will receive a $5 gift certificate to spend at our Vroman's book fair! Every student's bookmark will be laminated and returned to use for many happy reads. You can download an entry form by clicking on the title. Have fun!

THE SHOW MUST GO ON BOOK FAIR MARCH 12-18

At Vroman's bookstore in Pasadena, Hastings Ranch, or online. Vouchers will be shared shortly. Purchases only count when used during High Point's Book Fair dates.

Alumni News: John Henry Kurtz (’09)

I’ve been a life-long Southern Californian. After living in other parts of SoCal, I’m happy to say that I’m back in Pasadena for now and living just a few miles from High Point. I went to college at the University of Southern California and graduated in 2017 with a BFA in Film and Television Production. Since graduating, I’ve been working in independent film as a producer and editor, helping to bring entertaining and meaningful stories to the screen. In addition, I’ve recently added voice acting to my list of vocations. I’m a big fan of animation and video games, so getting to lend my voice to characters in those media is a lot of fun!

🧼🛁🧼🛁 Soap Making with Abby: Success!

Our very own Abby S. (8th grader), hosted a school-wide soapmaking workshop last Thursday during Homeroom. Abby is encouraging us all to make soap and donate to the Foothill Unity Center. You can drop off soap in the box outside the front office. Thank you!
